Before Joining Danganronpa
NDRV3 Cast Prologue

Himiko Yumeno is a normal talentless high school girl who participated in the 53rd Season of Danganronpa, a famous worldwide reality show made by Team Danganronpa.

Himiko and the other talentless fifteen students later undergo the fabrication process, where all of their past memory and personality were heavily fabricated. She also received the talent and title of Ultimate Magician. All of this were done for the sake of satisfying Danganronpa's audience from all around the world. After the fabrication process done, Himiko and the others entered the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles as a whole different person, officially commencing the 53rd killing game season known as the Killing School Semester.

During her high school days, Himiko attended Dream Forest Girl's High (夢森女子高校). However, it is unclear if this memory of her is a part of the fabrication made by Team Danganronpa.

Students of Fabrication
Fabricated Past

After she successfully participated in the 53rd Killing Game, Himiko's memories and past were fabricated by Team Danganronpa as follows.

According to Himiko, she has suffered from bullying in the past, most likely due to her very different type of behavior and communication.

Prior to being the bearer of the Ultimate Magician's title, Himiko was the self-proclaimed Ultimate Mage, as she insists that her parlor tricks are real magic.[5] She also claims that she was the youngest person ever chosen by the world magic lovers' society, the Magic Castle, also known as the Hall of Magicians, as the Magician of the Year. However, she says she has been prevented from receiving her reward because of a conspiracy to hide the existence of magic.

While she isn't recognized as a mage, Himiko is awash in clients from all over the world who want to hire her as a magician.[6]

The Gofer Project

Main article: The Gofer Project
The Gopher Plan V3 Kids
Part of the fake backstories created for Himiko and the other fifteen students was The Gofer Project, which supposedly happened before the killing game started. It was initiated by the government after countless meteorites crashed into Earth. To try and preserve the last vestiges of mankind before the Earth's destruction, the government decided to select a number of excellent human beings, put them in a spaceship, and have them escape.

Himiko and fifteen other high school students were chosen to participate. Not wanting to abandon their loved ones, they attempted to escape from the plan.

Around that time, an extremist cult came into power. They believed that the meteor crashes were a punishment humanity brought upon itself, and having heard of The Gofer Project, they tried to stop it. As a result, the “Ultimate Hunt” started and spread throughout the world, and the sixteen students were hunted down.

The Gopher Plan Fake Deaths

The government then decided to counter the situation by faking the students' deaths, calming down the “Ultimate Hunt” while providing protection to the students. The Gofer Project was then put into action while the Earth was being destroyed. Himiko and the others went to the space in a massive colony spaceship, the true form of Ultimate Academy of Gifted Juveniles.

Kokichi Oma, one of the participant of the plan, declared himself as a member of Junko Enoshima's Remnants of Despair who masterminded the Killing Game and let Monokuma entered the spaceship, effectively forcing Himiko and the others to participate in the Killing Game.

Himiko was able to received the complete memory about The Gofer Project in Chapter 5 via Flashback Light.


Killing School Semester

During the first days of the Killing Game, Himiko is shown to have a lack of energy and spirit. However, she agrees to offer her help to the group once in a while. After several failed attempt to escape the academy via Death Road of Despair, she eventually gave up, saying that she had drained all of her MP. She immediately gained a fan, Tenko, who was one of the people who truly believed in her magic, although she started to get bothered by her overly friendly spirited demeanor, which heavily overwhelmed her personality.

Even during the investigation of Rantaro Amami's murder Himiko didn't do notable achievement to help the group solve the case, as she has an absurd and firm belief that Gonta Gokuhara was the culprit, and threatened to punish him several times with her "magic" if he refused to confess.

The Magic Show

In Chapter 2, Himiko and Angie Yonaga created a magical event to cheer up everyone. The Ultimate Magician would perform a water escape magic show known as Chinese Water Torture Cell, the only performance that she claimed to have never succeeded to pass before, making her very nervous before the show started. She intended to jump into a water tank in the gymnasium and have one minute to escape from the tank before the piranhas were freed.

When Himiko finally jumped into the water, everyone is worried about why she still hadn't come out from the tank. Eventually, Himiko appeared and took pride at her success, thinking that she could impress everyone with her performance while in actuality, Ryoma Hoshi's dead body appeared inside the tank and was eaten by the freed piranhas.

The Summoning Ritual

In a morning in Chapter 3, Himiko and the others discovered Angie's body inside her Research Lab, which saddened Himiko greatly, as the two were great friends. Later, she approved Korekiyo Shinguji's idea to channel Angie's spirit so they could ask her about the one responsible for her death. Because Korekiyo told Himiko and the others that they could only perform the ritual in a dark place, Himiko immediately suggested using one of the empty rooms, which later made Himiko a suspect in the trial.

Spirit Summoning Ritual Preparation (4)

Himiko, alongside Tenko, Kokichi, Shuichi, and K1-B0 helped Korekiyo with the ritual preparation. Himiko volunteered herself to become the spirit medium, but Tenko immediately interrupted and became the spirit medium herself, since she understood that Himiko would've wasted a chance to talk to Angie's spirit if she became the medium.

Tenko Chabashira's death

Unfortunately, Tenko was killed right in the middle of the ritual. Himiko, who saw her lifeless body lying under the cage rushed to her side, ruining the ritual since she stepped onto the ritual circle, which Korekiyo forbid a while ago. Have lost two of her best friends, Himiko resolved to find their killer.

Losing Friends

Himiko crying post the third trial

In the third Class Trial, it was revealed that the one who killed both Tenko and Angie was Korekiyo, the one who came up with the spirit channeling ritual. Himiko greatly resented him for killing both of her dear friends, but her sadness overpowers her anger and she loses it after Korekiyo was dragged off to his execution, crying out loud until she drained all of her energy and fell asleep.

Gonta carries Yumeno

At the end of the chapter, Gonta Gokuhara carried Himiko back to her dorm.

Clearing the Death Road of Despair

Himiko, along with the other survivors, used Miu's inventions to cross the Death Road of Despair. They come across a large metal hatch, which they open up and discover the apparent state of the outside world. Shortly after, Kokichi Oma appears and proclaims himself to be the ringleader behind the game and controls the Exisals to take Kaito Momota hostage in the Exisal hanger.

Helping the Captive

While Kaito was being held captive, he got a chance to talk to Himiko through the small bathroom window and requested that she bring a disassembled cross-bow from Maki's Research Lab. Himiko was reluctant at first, but Kaito made it clear that he wasn't planning to kill anyone with it, to which she agreed to bring him the crossbow through the bathroom window. Unbeknownst to her however, K1-B0 bore witness to her carrying the crossbow carrying case into the hanger. Himiko would later join her fellow classmates in storming the Exisal hanger, only to find a body crushed beyond recognition underneath the press machine, the only clue as to who the victim could be being Kaito's sleeve where-as Kokichi is still missing. Everyone is horrified at the thought of having lost Kaito as the investigation begins.

During the Class Trial, Himiko along with everyone else is still confused about their current state of beginning a class trial with two missing people, but Monokuma reassures them that it's fine and that the one missing person is "on standby in the back". When that supposed missing person arrives riding an Exisal, and supposedly pretends to be Kaito before revealing themselves as Kokichi, Himiko, along with everyone else, believed that Kaito must have been the victim. Himiko is later accused of bringing the crossbow into the hanger, a claim that she denies out of fear of being accused until both K1-B0 and Shuichi Saihara make it clear that she did in fact do this. Himiko becomes exceptionally vocal and outspoken at this and tries to pin it on Maki Harukawa until she eventually comes clean and admits that she brought the crossbow because Kaito asked her to. She apologizes to Maki as well for accusing her, an apology that she accepts and clarifies by saying Himiko could not have used the crossbow because she never taught her how to assemble one. Himiko later becomes shocked when the supposed person inside of the Exisal (Which is thought to be Kokichi at the time) tells her that he likes her, though this was likely just a joke.

Confusion and Conclusion

Later on in the trial, when the voice coming out of the Exisal changed to match Kaito's again, Himiko along with K1-B0, and Tsumugi Shirogane believed that the victim could have been Kokichi and that the one riding the Exisal is Kaito. Although Shuichi and Maki thought that they disproved this claim, it is later revealed that Himiko was originally right near the end of the trial and that the one inside the Exisal was in fact Kaito.

Himiko, along with everyone else, is rendered depressed, stunned and silenced at the fact that Kaito ended up being the culprit of Kokichi's murder. However, he reassures everyone to smile, send him off in style, and that he won't accept their tears before proudly accepting his execution, but choosing to die on his own terms and not Monokuma's.

After the trial concluded, she would reunite with Shuichi, Maki, and Tsumugi in the courtyard, intent on ending the killing game for Kaito's sake. They all begin training, but it is cut short by K1-B0, who had lost his "connector" to the outside world and thus; was determined to destroy Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles and end the Killing Game himself.

Uncovering the Truth

During the final investigation, Himiko along with Shuichi went inside Rantaro Amami's Study Center. At first, the room was ambiguous and was hard to judge what his talent is based on the room's appearance. Later, Himiko and Shuichi managed to find a disc and discovered Rantaro's talent as the Super High School Level Survivor via a recording made by Rantaro himself.

When the survivors including Himiko encountered Mother Monokuma, she was accidentally trapped inside the hidden room inside the library after K1-B0 fought an Exisal. She could escape from the room via a hidden passage connected to the girls bathroom in the first floor. This fact later ultimately could point someone as The Mastermind of the Killing School Semester.

Himiko along with fellow survivors K1-B0, Shuichi, Maki, and Tsumugi decide to rethink Rantaro's case after discovering a new truth related to his murder. Once Shuichi revealed Rantaro's talent as the Super High School Level Survivor, and proving that Kaede did in fact not murder him and was executed unjustly, he realized that the mastermind has to be one of them. By double-checking everyone's alibis during Rantaro's murder, Shuichi hones in on Tsumugi as the true culprit and mastermind of the Killing School Semester.

Himiko along with the other survivors are confused and shocked that the Ultimate Cosplayer could have gone through with such a plan while she denied the claim vehemently. Shuichi however, makes it very clear that Tsumugi is the only person who could have murdered Rantaro by using the hidden passageway in the girls bathroom, which also led into the hidden room that connected to the library. She attempted to pin the blame on K1-B0 since he was not present for when they interacted with Mother Monokuma, but Shuichi is quick to call her out on not giving the command of "birth" which would have triggered Mother Monokuma's voice recognition software and created another Monokuma. Although Himiko tries to reassure her to argue, not wanting the mastermind to be a fellow comrade, it is for nothing. Her along with the others watch as Tsumugi slowly breaks and re-introduces herself as "Junko Enoshima the 53rd".

Tsumugi, now cosplaying as Junko, went on to reveal that everyone's memories of being students at Hope's Peak Academy, The Gofer Project, and shouldering their friends and families burdens as mankind's last hope, was all a false memory planted into their brains by the Flashback Light. In reality, everything they remember about attending Hope's Peak Academy and the outside world being destroyed was a lie. What they remember about Kokichi Oma being part of the Remnants of Despair was a lie as well. Himiko is exceptionally shocked by all this news and refuses to believe it at first, wondering how everything they believed to be their reality could possibly be fake.

In reality, the circumstances behind their killing game are far more cruel. After proving her talent fully as the Ultimate Cosplayer by cosplaying as some characters from Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, Tsumugi revealed that everything has been broadcasted to a very peaceful world that has been enjoying watching the students of Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles kill each other, essentially revealing everything that they've been through as a reality TV show and "Extreme Real Fiction". She also reveals that everything that took place in the Hope's Peak Academy Saga were nothing more than fictional events from a very popular anime and game franchise known as Danganronpa.

Himiko, along with the other survivors, were quick to oppose Tsumugi and Monokuma, but they both reveal that the participants of the Killing School Semester are also "fictional characters", whose memories, personalities, feelings, and talents were all fabricated in order to provide an exciting setting for the killing game. Tsumugi reveals herself as working for Team Danganronpa and goes a step further and shows Shuichi's, Kaede's, and Kaito's audition videos for the killing game, showing what sort of people they were prior to participating. Himiko seems to break down after hearing that her relationship with Tenko and Angie along with everyone else was all fabricated and meaningless, seemingly falling into despair.

K1-B0 however, after hearing what "the voice inside of him" has to say, reassured everyone to not lose hope. Tsumugi corrected him and says that the voice K1-B0 hears is the voice of the people watching this killing game and that he is nothing more than an interactive communication device and camera for the viewers to interact and participate in the game themselves. Despite this however, K1-B0 refused to give up on hope and stated that the people in the outside world don't want despair. Tsumugi meanwhile refused to give up on despair and stated that a world that enjoys killings could not possibly desire hope. In true Danganronpa fashion, they decide to settle this with one final, special vote where K1-B0 represents hope and Tsumugi represents despair.

However, Shuichi saw through the charade and cuts in, saying that neither choice is correct and that choosing hope would do nothing but cause the killing game to continue. Because of this, he decides to stop playing along and abandons his vote, hoping to end Danganronpa once and for all, much to Tsumugi's and Monokuma's chagrin. Eventually, Shuichi convinced Himiko to abandon her vote. She declares that even if she is a fictional character, her life is real. She calls the audience disgusting for enjoying watching lives get crushed and exclaims that her life is not a show-thing. Himiko declares that she will use her life as a weapon and vows to Tenko, Angie, and everyone else who had been victimized to end Danganronpa once and for all.

In a last ditch effort to keep Danganronpa going, K1-B0 is hacked by the audience. Tsumugi is proud to show that the audience does not wish for Danganronpa to end and explained that they supposedly deleted K1-B0's personality that kept getting in the way. K1-B0 is able to take brief control again and tells his fellow survivors that their choice is not the wrong one and that they can change the world before the hacking takes him over again. Himiko tells K1-B0 to hang in there, but Tsumugi tells everyone that what they're doing is pointless. Shuichi refuses to give up, still exclaiming that he will end Danganronpa and that their lives are not just show-things for their amusement.

Confident that Shuichi's voice reached the outside world through K1-B0, Himiko and everyone else abandon their vote. However, Tsumugi bends the rules one last time and abandons her vote as well, which she reveals after everyone else did. Everyone is immediately confused and worried as to why she did it. Tsumugi states that if they're going to risk their lives to end Danganronpa, then she will risk her life to make it continue. Tsumugi is confident that Danganronpa will continue after abandoning her vote, meaning only K1-B0's vote will have any power as he is still being hacked.

When Monokuma displays the results of the final voting, Tsumugi is shocked to discover that no one had voted, proving that the audience does not want Danganronpa to continue. Tsumugi panics and tries to make everyone reconsider, but it is no use as the monitors all turn off, the audience no longer showing any interest. Himiko belittled her and says that had she not bent the rules at the last moment she may have won. Tsumugi, upon realizing that Danganronpa was indeed over and done with, promptly loses all of her hope in living as she denied a world without Danganronpa, but she had not prepared a proper execution before hand as as such leaves it to K1-B0.

Himiko along with her fellow survivors take cover under some rubble while K1-B0 executed everything and blows himself up, creating an opening in the glass dome for his fellow survivors to escape.

Himiko's Fate

NDRV3 Survivors 2

Himiko survived the final execution along with fellow survivors Shuichi and Maki by hiding under some rubble. Himiko was in a bit of a bind, but Shuichi helped her up before taking in their surroundings. Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles had been completely obliterated by K1-B0. The remaining survivors wondered what would become of the fictional world now, but none of them had an idea of what to do now that everything was over. Maki questioned at first why they were still alive, but Himiko and Shuichi both stated that it must have been the outside world's will that let them survive.

To Maki and Himiko's surprise however, Shuichi states that what Tsumugi said to them about the outside world may have been a lie, and that Hope's Peak Academy and the Remnants of Despair might actually exist, though he has no proof to back up this claim. He also does not think that he would willingly participate in a killing game no matter how mad of a world he was living in, but once again it is mere speculation, though Himiko states that Kaito's insight might be rubbing off on him.

NDRV3 Survivors

Despite not really knowing what is truth and what is lie however, Himiko along with the two remaining survivors resolve themselves to go out into the outside world and see the truth for themselves, and that if a lie had changed the world, then the story would not end.


Creation and Development

Name


Her given name kanji, 秘密子 himiko, means "secret child" while her last name kanji, 夢野 yumeno, means "dream field". Her full name could be taken as a pun meaning "secret child of wide dreams".

Alternate Fates


InDanganronpa V3: Killing Harmony (Demo Version), Himiko was first seen inside the cafeteria along with Tenko Chabashira and Kaito Momota. She introduced herself to Kaede Akamatsu and Makoto Naegi, insisting that her true title is the Ultimate Mage but due to the conspiracy of magic nonexistent, people refer her as the Ultimate Magician, much to her dismay.

During the incident of Yasuhiro Hagakure's murder, Himiko was having tea with Tenko in the cafeteria. Himiko gives her a lecture about the difference between magic and witchcraft and stated that there was always the two of them. However, Tenko noticed a male entering the kitchen but didn't have time to pay closer attention since Himiko's lecture intensified and didn't let her have some free time until the body discovery announcement was broadcasted by Monokuma.

Appearance

Himiko Yumeno Fullbody Sprite (Special)
NDRV3 Art Gallery Himiko Yumeno

Himiko has pale skin, greyish red eyes and medium length red hair. Her most notable trait is her black "witch hat", with red lines around the middle. She also has a quite short stature and round face, giving her quite a young appearance. The right corners of her upper lips are slightly curled up.

She also wears brown medieval looking boots with white ribbons tied on, black tights, and a red skirt. Around the upper half of her body is a black blazer and underneath is what looks like a brown/burgundy shirt. Some of her red hair is hidden in the witch hat she wears on her head. She also wears a hairpin on the right side of her hair, which resembles a blue gem.

Personality

Himiko considers her parlor tricks to be real magic, which is why she prefers to be called a mage instead of magician. However, she is only seen doing rather ordinary things like hand techniques and making doves appear. She gets annoyed if people tell her magic isn't real, causing her to repeat that it is over and over again. During various situations, she tends to claim that she could use her magic to fix the problem, but she says she doesn't have enough MP. She also tends to take the credit in multiple situations, claiming it all happened thanks to her magic. Fitting her mage theme, she also uses an outdated way of speaking.

While she has a "to the max" side as a magician, Himiko also has a very lazy side and finds putting in the maximum effort to be too much trouble. She constantly calls things tiresome and appears disinterested in things other than magic, refusing to do several things because it's "such a pain". She also struggles to communicate her feelings to others, claiming that talking wears her out and generally appears to be spaced out.[5] While she is occasionally anxious to the point of severe trembling and stuttering, there are also moments when she just appears mildly annoyed during horrible situations and doesn't seem to fully realize what is happening. She is also notably childish, taking pride in things like brushing her teeth or going to the bathroom by herself, and constantly talks about her magic or other completely irrelevant topics during inappropriate moments. Because of all of this, she has difficulties connecting with others, and her overall behavior seems to suggest that she may have a some form of disorder. Even though it often cannot be seen from the outside, she does feel strongly on the inside and suffers from terrible fear during the killing game.

Her personality conflicts with the complete opposite of Tenko Chabashira's, who tires out Himiko very quickly with her extreme personality, causing her to tell her to stop and leave her alone rather rudely and bluntly at times.

Feeling as if she has no one to turn to, Himiko is convinced to worship Atua by Angie Yonaga, with her using this faith as an escapism against the terrible situation she is in. She appears to turn much more peaceful, but also refuses to face the reality and even begins to suppress emotions such as anger. Starting from Chapter 4, Himiko decides to change herself for better in order to survive the killing game after two of her best friends perished. After Tenko's advice about letting out her emotions, she does her best to not be lazy and becomes high spirited at times, also making herself better in communicating and bonding with the others, notably Maki Harukawa. She copied Kaito Momota's "Maki Roll" nickname for her, but always ended up being glared at by an annoyed Maki.
Spoilers end here.


Himiko is also shown to be a bit self-conscious about her shortness and small chest, which is why she often gets annoyed when Tenko keeps calling her "small and cute" during the earlier chapters. She also humorously occasionally assumes that some other students have a romantic interest in her, though she seems to be a bit uncomfortable if the other person is a girl, bluntly asking them if "they're playing for the other team".

In the original Japanese, Himiko usually called people that she respects with an usual suffix "よ/yo" and ended her sentence with "-ja." She also refers herself as "Uchi/うち/ウチ", a pronoun used where a person was talking on behalf of their family, company, etc. It is also used by women in the Kansai region and the island of Kyushu.

Spoilers start here.
Tenko is shown to be attracted to Himiko since the first chapter and constantly tries to spend time with her and get her attention. Her behavior is sometimes flirtatious, which seems to make Himiko uncomfortable. Having extremely different personalities, Himiko is often overwhelmed by Tenko and wants to be left in peace. She can quite bluntly and rudely tell her to stop, yet Tenko continues to stay with her and wishes to protect her. Notably, Tenko is the only other student who seems to genuinely believe in Himiko's magic and just like her she keeps insisting that she is a real mage instead of magician. Tenko also often attempts to convince Himiko to take up Neo Aikido, but she always declines, claiming to be too lazy.

Tenko is also very protective of Himiko and was usually the one to save her from incidents, like when she was attacked by bugs. In Chapter 2, she also tried to convince Himiko not to perform her dangerous trick. During the second trial, when Angie turned against Himiko, Tenko protected her from all the suspicion towards her, saying that she will believe in Himiko no matter what and doesn't think she is a person capable of taking the others' lives. Thanks to this act, Himiko begun to warm up to Tenko. She didn't find her annoying anymore and begun to join in her activities.

Tenko later becomes jealous and worried when Himiko decides to follow Angie's footsteps in worshipping her "handsome" God. She asks Himiko if she's into handsome types and why she doesn't go for Tenko instead. Himiko then asks Tenko if she swings that way, slightly shocking Tenko who then turns embarrassed and nervously tries to explain it's not like that. In Chapter 3, Tenko even joined the Student Council led by Angie only so she could be close with Himiko and protect her. However, they get into an argument after Tenko outrightly tries to ask Himiko to leave the council. Himiko refuses as she uses the council to cope with the killing game situation, though it also causes her to shut in her feelings.

In the end, Tenko fulfilled her role as a protector for Himiko, as she was the one who told Himiko to stay back and voluntarily made herself as the medium, ultimately ending her life in Chapter 3. She also gave Himiko advice about being open about her emotions. When Tenko is murdered, Himiko has a breakdown and she tries to act according to Tenko's example in the future, causing her to develop as a person.

While Tenko is confirmed to have romantic feelings for Himiko, Himiko's feelings for Tenko are a bit more unclear though implied. During the final class trial, when Tsumugi claims she is responsible for causing Maki to have romantic feelings for Kaito, Himiko immediately brings up Tenko and Tsumugi claims credit for her feelings as well.

Himiko becomes close friends with Angie, making Tenko jealous. She loves showing Angie and Tenko her magic tricks, and Angie even assists her at one point, although they are interrupted by Ryoma Hoshi's murder. Despite their bond, Angie immediately accused Himiko of being Ryoma's killer when there was evidence that showed Himiko was capable of being the killer. Angie stated that she needed to do so because she didn't want her classmates to die due to choosing the wrong culprit.

Angie attempts to convert Himiko to join her religion. Though appearing uninterested and lazy at first, Himiko eventually decides to follow Angie's footsteps in worshipping her "handsome" God. Because of this, Tenko joined the Student Council to be with Himiko and later betrayed Angie.

When the two are killed by Korekiyo, Himiko is devastated and tearful. She actively participates in their class trial, determined to solve their murders and find their killer.

Tsumugi Shirogane

Tsumugi seems to be the only other one among students alongside Tenko that responds to Himiko's saying as a mage. When Himiko states that she ran out of MP during the demo class trial, Tsumugi suggests that she sleep at the inn for one night in order to restore her MP.[9]

The two remained on good terms with one another throughout the Killing School Semester, never seeming openly hostile to each other but not quite close friends either. After Kaito's trial concluded, both girls joined Shuichi and Maki in the courtyard to carry on the Ultimate Astronaut's will, showing that they see each other as fellow survivors and friends.

After Shuichi deduced that Tsumugi was Rantaro's true killer and Ringleader behind their killing game, Himiko did not want to believe it and, like Shuichi, wanted her to argue and prove her own innocence, not wanting to condemn or think ill of another comrade. After Tsumugi did admit to orchestrating their killing game however, Himiko could do nothing but be even more disappointed, but eventually vowed to stop her and the killing game alongside her fellow survivors for good, even if it cost her her own life.

Kokichi often enjoys teasing Himiko due to her delayed reactions and personality. Kokichi tends to point fingers at her and claim she's the culprit, though he doesn't really seem to believe this and seemingly just does it for fun, like in Chapter 2.

During Chapter 3's trial, Kokichi causes Himiko to cry by harshly calling her out for running away from her own emotions and being a hypocrite. She had made promises and talked at length during the trial about how she wasn’t going to call things tiresome and that she was going to embrace her emotions to the fullest and be honest with herself, but she wasn't actually doing it. Kokichi was surprised when Himiko had a breakdown due to Tenko's and Angie's death. As a result, Himiko really dislikes and doesn't trust Kokichi in the later chapters.

In Chapter 5, Himiko states that there is no way to love or take interest in a person like Kokichi. In turn, Kokichi suddenly answered he loved her, making her respond by blushing. Due to his lying nature, it's hard to tell if he was serious, but it's likely that he simply gave the answer which would surprise and shock the other the most, for his own amusement.

In her relationship chart, Kokichi grins while calling her "an extremely ugly girl". He similarly calls Himiko ugly during the Prologue, when Miu tells the Monokubs to kill the ugly ones first, and Kokichi then cheerfully tells Himiko to run. Himiko, however, does not understand what he's talking about.

K1-B0

During the first chapters, Himiko is shown to have quite a poor opinion of K1-B0, seemingly not considering him a person and more than once suggesting that "they should just kill the robot".

At some point, Himiko suggests that K1-B0 should self-destruct to open a hole in the wall, thus making himself useful. In Chapter 6, he self-destructed to destroy the academy's wall, letting Himiko and the other survivors to escape.

In Chapter 4, when Monotaro suffered from severe memory issues, he somehow became friends with the remaining students as he was helpful to them and considered him a very nice person. When Monotaro believed K1-B0 was his father and the robot declined, Himiko accused K1-B0 of mean behavior and told him he should at least play along for now.

Trivia

  • Himiko's title, rather than being 魔術師 majutsushi (a magician in the fantastical sense) or 手品師 tejinashi (magician as in a performer), is simply the Japanese transliteration of the English word "magician" - which in Japanese could also mean both "real" and "stage" magician, although usually refers to the latter.
  • Himiko is the shortest female character in Danganronpa V3.
  • Himiko's English voice actress, Christine Marie Cabanos, also voices Chiaki Nanami.
  • She strongly dislikes insects.
  • In a poll hosted by MyNavi, fans voted Himiko the 5th most popular Danganronpa V3 student.[10]
Himiko Yumeno's familiar spirit
  • Himiko claims that her familiar is a tiger cub (which is seen in her official artwork). However, during her Love Suite fantasy scene, her familiar is a wolf transformed into a human form she fell in love with.
